We have been in Whistler for over 20 years and we love sharing where we live with visitors - in the summer, fall, winter and spring - there is always something amazing going on!!

The Alpenglow Lodge is the "heart of Whistler"! We find the location and size makes this a comfortable place to stay. All the ammenities of the big hotels but specializing is personal service.
We provide direct check in at the Alpenglow Front Desk. Unlike many rentals where you are sent an email with a bunch of codes and you are left to fend for your self, we will be there to greet you and get you checked in. We offer full guest services. From the time you book to the time you leave, we will provide you with all the infomation you need to make your vacation seamless.
Pros: The suite was clean, well equipped and overall great for our weekend away. It's about a 10 minute walk to the village and there are several restaurants within 2-3 minutes of the suite. It's warm and cozy (loved the fireplace). We didn't use the kitchen but it is fully equipped for a self-cooking stay. There was even fresh ice in the freezer :). The soundproofing in the building is awesome. We came back from dinner and the people next door were having a noisy gathering and once we walked into the suite we couldn't hear a thing. There's a TV in the living room and bedroom with tons of cable channels. Overall a great place and fit all our needs. View of the mountains from bed, what more can you ask!
Cons: The second night we realized that the couch was pressed up against the baseboard heater and when we moved it away from the wall the couch was VERY hot. Might be something to double check if you stay as that could be a fire hazard. The bed creaks a ton (I think it was the box spring?). I move a lot in my sleep and every tiny movement made a loud creaking noise. The bedroom is very small so whoever takes the window side of the bed has to climb over the bed or inch between the wall and end of the bed to get out. Really not a big deal at all to us but I know some people are picky!
We enjoyed our stay. However our 7 year old son (who loves to swim) found the swimming pool to cold. He swam once and never went back in. The fitness room was very basic but provided enough equipment for a workout. Everything else was good but small. Good location. One thing I would pay attention to when booking is that even though the Alpenglow is in Canada the price on VRBO is in US dollars??? This caught us by surprise and increased the price we were expecting to pay by over 30%. A bit deceptive on the owners part. Just be aware when booking that it is not as good a deal as it appears to be
We were happy to realize the Alpenglow was close to the plaza but far enough wway the noise didn't travel much.
Clean apartment. Comfortable bed and living space.
